Euan Lloyd (born 6 December 1923) is a British film producer.

He began his career directing short travelogue documentaries, starting with April in Portugal in 1954. From there he became associate producer and producer on numerous international films such as The Secret Ways, The Poppy Is Also a Flower, Murderer's Row, and westerns such as Shalako and Catlow.

In the 1970s, Lloyd went independent, but his first effort, Paper Tiger (1975), was not a success. He put everything he had behind the $10 million action film The Wild Geese (1978). He followed with The Sea Wolves, (1980) starring Roger Moore, David Niven and Gregory Peck and Who Dares Wins (1982). His last film was Wild Geese II (1985) starring Scott Glenn and Laurence Olivier.

Lloyd appeared in the short documentary The Last of the Gentleman Producers which accompanied the 2004 release of The Wild Geese on DVD, and also contributed to the audio commentary alongside Roger Moore and film editor/second unit director John Glen.
